I just started snowboarding last year and this year I am trying butters and jumps. I don't know if I should get a salomon sanchez or the rome artifact rocker.
What board would you guys or gals recommend?
I am 5'8 and 200 pounds 33 years old.
Buying a soft flexing board and then going over the weight recomendations isn't a combo likely to come out good. That would be a very jib specific ride. Bad for anything else including jumps. You're right at the top range of the 156 Artifact's weight range.
The issue would be that the already soft board would flex like a noodle under your weight. The bigger the board, the stiffer it tends to be. So going to a 156 will give you a better compromise in terms of flex and ridability.
